  15. Development and Validation of Broiler Welfare Assessment Methods for Research and On-farm Audits

    Contributor(s):: Meyer, Meaghan M., Johnson, Anna K., Bobeck, Elizabeth A.

    Required auditing of on-farm broiler welfare in the United States has increased; however, a lack of validated tools exists for assessment of enrichment. National Chicken Council (NCC) guidelines were used on a subset of 300 Ross 308 broilers out of 1200 to validate and adapt welfare measures....

  16. Lameness in Sheltered Cows and Its Association with Cow and Shelter Attributes

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Arvind Sharma, Clive J. C. Phillips

    The sheltering of old, unproductive and abandoned cows in traditional cow shelters, known as gaushalas, has been practiced in India since ancient times. Cows are kept in these shelters until they die of natural causes. The welfare of the cows in these shelters was assessed through a...

  17. Effects of environmental enrichment on activity and lameness in commercial broiler production

    | Contributor(s):: Vasdal, Guro, Vas, Judit, Newberry, Ruth C., Moe, Randi Oppermann

    The aim of this pilot study was to investigate the effects of commercially applied environmental enrichments on behavior and lameness in broilers. Two consecutive flocks of broilers were observed at 16 days and 30 days of age to investigate differences between enriched (peat, bales of lucerne...

  18. Pain expression is linked to personality in horses

    | Contributor(s):: Ijichi, Carrie, Collins, Lisa M., Elwood, Robert W.

    Tissue damage may result in pain, inducing protective behaviour such as lameness. Because we cannot directly measure an animal's subjective experience, pain research and veterinary assessment rely on these behavioural indicators when quantifying pain. This assumes that pain expression is...

  19. Behavioural changes in dairy cows with lameness in an automatic milking system

    | Contributor(s):: Miguel-Pacheco, Giuliana G., Kaler, Jasmeet, Remnant, John, Cheyne, Lydia, Abbott, Caroline, French, Andrew P., Pridmore, Tony P., Huxley, Jonathan N.

    There is a tendency worldwide for the automation of farms; this has included the introduction of automatic milking systems (AMS) in the dairy industry. Lameness in dairy cows is highly prevalent and painful. These impacts potentially affect not only animal welfare, but also farm economies. Three...

  20. Relationships between lameness and feeding behaviour in cubicle-housed Holstein–Friesian dairy cows

    | Contributor(s):: Palmer, Maeve A., Law, Ryan, O’Connell, Niamh E.

    The relationship between lameness and feeding behaviour in dairy cows is not yet fully understood. This study examined the effect of lameness on feeding behaviour at two points during lactation. Forty-five Holstein–Friesian dairy cows (average parity 3.3) were housed in cubicle accommodation...
